Question about 1998 Ford Windstar
Start the Van, and with the engine running, take the Negative Cable off the Batttery and see what happens. This Battery Light on could be an indication that the Alternator is beginning to fail.
If the engine dies, then the alternator is bad.
At higher RPM's does the Battery Light go out?
This would be another indication that the alternator is failing.
How are the belts? Are they worn or slipping?
Take a reading coming off the alternator with the engine is running.
